Great news, now get to work! :thup::D

I'll start working on some redirects. Jod, do you plan on putting some more content into the FM07 page? It looks kind of bare as it is...

pnefc22
21-02-2009, 21:30
Can someone make a redirect to the Major League Soccer page when you type in "MLS"? (if possible, I'm too lazy to type the whole name every time. On wiki, i just type "mls")

Oh, and rob, I'm already starting to think about making some individual wiki player pages, from the uncreated red link pages of de Guzman and DeRosario on the Canadian page. :)

Yeah same, I have got a whole list of players to make profiles for.

I guess that you are going to do all of Toronto's team and Canada's team :D

FM07?

There is nothing on it all. Somebody created a link to it and I just categorised it.

pnefc22
21-02-2009, 21:32
I apologise over the Dynamo (Kiev), (Kyiv), (Kyev) thing. I did not understand but now I understand over the redirects.

Could I have a redirect done for the Preston page, so that when you type in 'pne'.

I will do it myself if you tell me how to. Thanks

I'll tell you if you want so you know in the future anyway.

Just create a page with the title of the redirect, so in this case it is PNE.

Then on the page just put the following #REDIRECT [[pagename]]

pagename is obviously the name of the article you want to redirect to so in this case it is the Preston page.

I don't mind doing it. :D

I was wondering why you asking me though as I never had anything to do with that article. All I did was categorise it. :D

Yep every member. :D

And maybe most MLS players too, but might let one of you do Becks profile. :p

Ok, thanks a lot.

I have edited the CM01/02 page, adding some info there but I have not finished.

This is what I have done: http://www.fmliveonline.com/fmwiki/index.php?title=Championship_Manager_01/02

21-02-2009, 21:41
I added the player profile page on the banner.

Move it to look better if you want, as I was unsure of where to position it.

peter-evo
21-02-2009, 21:43
Just saw the new layout, very nice, looks proffesional. You guys have done good. I do think we should have an organised 'all articles' page.

ahmufcwafc
21-02-2009, 21:45
I edited the CM01/02 page a bit. Removed the roken links for you.

jod123

I have done the FM07 page quickly. I will finish it off later on.

I see you created a category. You don't need to enter a link to the article on it. If you just insert [[Category:Player Profiles]] at the end of each Player Profile article it will automatically be added to the page. :thup:

ahmufcwafc
21-02-2009, 21:49
Rob, do you plan on putting an introduction in your CM01/02 page? I must say it looks a bit bare without it. If not, I could do it if you like :thup:

Yes, I do plan on putting in an introduction, as well as a player type thing.

If you are offering then, you can do the introduction while I work on a player list etc.

pnefc22
21-02-2009, 21:58
I thought that it would be only suitable if the first player profile would be of him:

The Biggest Flop due to the hype. (http://www.fmliveonline.com/fmwiki/index.php?title=Cherno_Samba)

BTW, this article is not finished but is a start.

I see that you have done it. It looks good. I may add some more information to it as we go along.

How come I can't add in the contents or the opening at all?

Is it because i am not an admin?

Do you think that we will ever have more people with sysops(admin) priviledges?

Plus, weren't there 4 people with admin priviledges before JJay helped us?

Lot of questions I know :D

You get a contents bit if you have more than 3 proper headings in a page. Your problem is that you're just putting text in bold instead of a heading. That's why contents never come up for you.

peter-evo
21-02-2009, 22:16
CaptainPlanet has yet to register to the Wiki I believe so that is why he is not sysops; he would be made sysops if/when he signs up

In this page, Player Profiles (http://www.fmliveonline.com/fmwiki/index.php?title=Category:Player_Profiles) why can I not add more players to the list?

It is really annoying me and hampering me doing stuff having all this stuff blocked, as I would like to add more player profiles.

Ok, thanks.

I do it manually that is why instead of clicking on the buttons.

ahmufcwafc
21-02-2009, 22:20
Just type [[Category:Player Profiles]] at the end of every page you want put into that category.

rancer890
21-02-2009, 22:25
Well, I just added Landon Donovan. :p

How are you guys going to approach these player profiles? Add a player screenshot, and include a coach report? Just wondering how to improve the presentation of these player profiles...

I agree, ahmufcwafc is the best :cool:

Anyway, here's how you add a screenshot:


Click 'upload file' on the left hand corner of the page.
Upload it from wherever you have it saved.
Go into the page that you want to put the image into, & at the top write [[Image:<image link here> | *whatever side you want the image to be one (eg. left/right/centre )* | caption]]

Sorry lads - the link www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk has all sorted itself out and it was my fault that I hadn't removed part of the url from the wiki setup why it didn't appear.

It's up and working now so the domain in your hyperlink bar should be correct :) Makes it easier when creating and editing articles :)

JJay
21-02-2009, 22:58
Yeah - the temporary link that you were given no longer points straight at the wiki settings which is why the layout will disappear on there. Your coding on your page shouldn't be a problem if you load it up using the below link.

www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk <--------------- That's the link now for the long-term. No more temp links :)

21-02-2009, 23:25
The new link works fine now.

I suggest logo 1.

JJay
21-02-2009, 23:44
I've popped a version of logo 1 in to the logo space for now. It may be an idea for somebody who is a bit better with graphics than myself to enlarge the image slightly if it appears that the logo is too small :)

arsenal_2111
21-02-2009, 23:45
Yeah, too small atm imo. Maybe Neji can make it a bit bigger for us?

ahmufcwafc
21-02-2009, 23:50
I agree, it's too small. I'll try & resize it myself now.

ahmufcwafc
21-02-2009, 23:54
Having trouble re-sizing it myself as well. I'll ask Neji & jod about it, hopefully either one of them will offer some help.

jod123
22-02-2009, 00:08
I'm here now. Well done. Everyone has done really well with all their contributions. :thup:

I see you took the first logo as the one. I'll try and resize it if you want.

What size do we need?

arsenal_2111
22-02-2009, 00:20
The biggest we can imo.

ahmufcwafc
22-02-2009, 00:21
The biggest we can imo.
Which is 148x124 if I'm not mistaken.

ssestig
22-02-2009, 00:32
Is the Steve Collis page OK or would more information be needed over his career?

jod123
22-02-2009, 00:33
Which is 148x124 if I'm not mistaken.

Do you want me to constrain the proportions?

If so I cannot make it that size.

arsenal_2111
22-02-2009, 00:34
ssestig

I would add something about his career tbh, like history.

Also, I would put something about him in Football Manager. Like stats, coach reports...

It's a FM site, so it should have FM related info on every page imo.

ssestig
22-02-2009, 00:36
How do I do like coding in this forum for his stats?

ahmufcwafc
22-02-2009, 00:37

I know, that's the problem. We're currently using the biggest proportionate size that we possibly can. Maybe it's best to leave it as it is for now.

ssestig
22-02-2009, 00:45
Yes mate. It would be easier for career stats.

jod123
22-02-2009, 01:05
To create a table have a look here (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Tables).

If you have any trouble, let me know. :thup:

Also I edited the attributes article. I hope you don't mind pnefc. I am putting in an explanation for each attribute.

ssestig
22-02-2009, 01:13
Cheers mate. Sorted the table for Collis' career.

Have a look at the help page on the wiki, if you want to figure out how to do something like tables, images, create templates or anything. There is a link to the media wiki user guide on it. I also restructured rancer's MLS guide, expanded the attributes guide and other edits. :thup:

Is their team has a page, make sure you link their names to that page. Makes sure people can find out about players via the club screen.

ssestig
22-02-2009, 16:25
How do I do that?

arsenal_2111
22-02-2009, 16:26
I'll do it for you, but for future reference just put [[ ]] around the player name. Make sure the player name is the same as the name of the page.

ssestig
22-02-2009, 16:31
Cheers. Will do that from now on.

jod123
22-02-2009, 16:32
Just to add, if it is not the same as the name then just put [[Article name|text you want to show here]]

arsenal_2111
22-02-2009, 20:47
One part is wrong, so I corrected it:

It was:


For each of these areas is a slider, with 5 bands:

- None
- Light
- Medium
- High
- Intensive


It is now:


For each of these areas is a slider, with 6 bands:
- None
- Very Light
- Light
- Medium
- Heavy
- Very Heavy

Other than that looks good:thup:

rancer890
22-02-2009, 21:03
I see it there :confused:

I created an article called 'United States' and I can't find it. :(

I remember because I linked it with my Canadian National Team article. I wouldn't call it 'America'. And I definitely wouldn't call it 'football'! :p

jod123
22-02-2009, 21:08
You could not have rancer as if it was deleted there would still be a record of it's deletion. If it was moved then there would be a redirect.

arsenal_2111
22-02-2009, 21:08
So what has happened then? I'm confused.

rancer890
22-02-2009, 21:10
Can you rename the article as least? :p

I can't find the redirect when I type 'United States'.

jod123
22-02-2009, 21:11
Moving it is renaming it. What do you want the article called? United States

rancer890

American National Team
The United States National Team is controlled by the United States Soccer Federation. Football has won popularity at the Unites States since 1970s and the national team has become one of the most important forces in CONCACAF and has appeared in the last five FIFA World Cups.

(more to be added later)

American National Team
The United States National Team is controlled by the United States Soccer Federation. Football has won popularity at the Unites States since 1970s and the national team has become one of the most important forces in CONCACAF and has appeared in the last five FIFA World Cups.

(more to be added later)

Yes please, he/she has changed:


In my opinion the squad could do with 5 or 6 more quality players to be considered as a top 6 contending team. The positions that need strengthening are left back, centre back, centre midfield, both wings and up front.

I feel a left back is needed as although Enrique is strong and solid, he just isnít up to scratch technique-wise, therefore the new player should be good enough to be first choice.
Possible Targets: Manuel Pasqual (Fiorentina), Taye Taiwo (Marseille), Razvan Rat (Shakhtar)

The new centre back would provide cover and rotation for the current partnership of Coloccini and Taylor, which I believe will be a pretty good duo at the back.
Possible Targets: Christopher Samba (Blackburn), Guy Demel (HSV), Mirel Radoi (Steaua)

Centre midfield needs a creative spark, as all but one (Ignacio Gonzalez) of the current crop are more defensive minded. Therefore a creative attacking player is required here to partner one of the defensive players.
Possible Targets: Alex (Internacional), Juan Roman Riquelme (Boca), Diego Buonanotte (River), Douglas Costa (Gremio)

Cover is needed for both wings as there is no natural right winger other than Jonas, and I feel Duff isnít good enough to cover for NíZogbia. I would suggest bringing in a more experienced player on the left, and a younger player for the right.
Possible Targets: Alessandro Rosina (Torino), Cani (Villarreal), Juan Arango (Mallorca), Francois Clerc (Lyon), Marko Babic (Betis)

Finally I feel we need another good striker to rotate with Owen and Martins, as Viduka, in my opinion, is past it and should only be used sparingly and I donít feel Xisco will ever become anything special. The new man should be tall, strong and good in the air, ala Adebayor at Arsenal.
Possible Targets: Stephen Ayodele Makinwa (Lazio), Kevin Doyle (Reading), Soren Larsen (Toulouse), Maroune Chamakh (Bordeaux), Marco Borriello (A.C Milan)

On the selling front, I would look to sell Cacapa, Alan Smith, Mark Viduka, and depending on your singings, also sell Damien Duff.



to


* Cacapa: Not premiership standard
* Alan Smith: Not premiership standard, Injury prone, high wages for a roation player (42k a week)
* Mark Viduka: Old, Injury Prone, High wages (60k a week)
* Damien Duff: High wages for a backup left winger (65k a week)
* Michael Owen: Injury Prone, High Wages (125k a week)
* Shola Ameobi: Not premiership standard
* Nicky Butt: Ageing, Can provide cover for 2 seasons or so.
* Geremi: Ageing, although can provide cover for another season or so.

I'd appriciate it if you could change it back. Thanks:)

I removed the disclaimer because i don't think it belongs on a public wikipedia page where since anyone can edit it's not fair to credit just one person on it, the official wikipedia also follows this guideline.

My edits to the article were merely building upon Seans work already posted on the wiki, boldening some things to make it easier on the eyes and adding additional information and advice to readers.

I thought the article i left was a pretty neat and tidy one, i don't see why you need to add in that load of player targets as some of them were based on FM08 such as Sean saying to sell Enrique who is decent enough on FM09 and some of the advice given is flawed such as reccomending 10M+ players to buy on a 6M budget. A few more deficiences i thought are found in the reccomended formation and line up, tactical advice was given which i thought was not too helpful and of no use whatsoever (basically saying use 4-4-2 with quick direct passing) so removed.
Overall i thought the article was alot easier to read, gave good sound advice and let the reader decide on what tactics to use.

No, you certainly don't deserve a warning. I'll leave this up to arsenal to respond to the rest of your post though.

Regarding the disclaimers, a lot of the information left in was NUFCSean's. As he wrote the base to it I feel he deserves to get the credit for it. That was one of the conditions that writers agreed to when they let me use their threads, and I am going to stick to that. If I got rid of the disclaimers I would have to tell the writers, and some might not want their work there without getting credit for it. I'll edit the disclaimer now to credit you as well.

Although you might not have found the information helpful, some would. No, the tactical advice wasn't exactly developed much, but there was no need to delete it altogether. For someone who has never played as Newcastle it may have been some use, to build on. I really don't see why you would delete work because you didn't find it helpful. I don't find the youth intake page useful, because I know it. That doesn't mean I delete it, because I realise that other people might find it useful. You say you wanted to let the reader to decide what tactics to use. Surely a guide is something that you get advice from, so they can read that and make their own decisions after reading it.

On Football Manager people can sell players as well as buy. Sean recommends selling 'Cacapa, Alan Smith, Mark Viduka, and depending on your singings, also sell Damien Duff', which could raise £10mil potentially. There is no problem in recommending players above budget, because players can always be sold to fund it. If you feel other signings are more realistic then feel free to edit it and give some more options, but some people won't need more realistic options.

As for the Enrique part, that is Sean's opinion. Everyone has one, not everyone agree's with one. Not agreeing with one part doesn't mean you should delete the whole part of his post.

Jod has covered the warning part, so I won't repeat him.

Reading the above through, some parts could come across as slightly agressive. This was not the way it was supposed to be, so sorry if you take offense to it.

Thanks for the reply, i didn't "delete" seans work pre-se i merely reworded it so it was easier to read, changing his possible players to sell into a bullleted list i thought helped alot, By the way do you know what happened to Sean? His account isn't registered on Si forums anymore. The Enrique part he stated was based on his accounts from FM08 and may not apply to FM09. actical Advice i feel shouldn't be given unless its for a very good reason, i don't see why Sean reccomended fast pasted direct attacking as that would be reliant on the players you may buy or sell, FM tactics are very complicated and if the user takes in the advice from the wiki and it doesn't work it could leave him feeling very frustrated .

Yeah, sean10 is NUFCSean who's computer wouldnt let him log on so he got that account and then had it deleted when he got his problem fixed.

Where did he say that that is based on FM08? I can't see it.

That was base advice, people won't just do that. There is nothing wrong with giving some advice, wether you agree with it or not.

And, regarding Enrique again, I agree that he isn't good enough from his technical stats.

I was reading the discussion between Orion Dean and Arsenal. This is an example of what could happen though. One person makes edits in good faith trying to improve the article so there is certainly nothing wrong with that. Another person could have a different opinion on a player for example which again is fair. If the two people are stubborn enough it could lead to edit wars and stuff. You can't really dismiss either person as they are both entitled to have their opinions and they both are trying to improve the article so what should we do in this case if that ever happened?

I have no idea tbh, maybe put two bullet points with differing views? Like on some TV shows/magazines etc, they do 'He said, I say' or something like that.

Alright, fair enough. I guess the main thing then is to make sure that everything is categorised properly - basically what I mean is that if we have an article on Ji-Park Sung which suggests that he isn't good enough for the squad and should be sold, then it should be specifically under Football Manager 2009 headings, else the article would need to be updated every single year. Having said that, it might just be easier to leave that kind of information out and keep it factual.

Something else: I've added a Template:Main and used it in the Football Manager 2009 article (under the fake players controversy heading) to link to the Fake Players article, but I wanted to make the template allow for piped links, ie use the link Fake Players#Football_Manager_2009, but show the link as just Fake Players. However, I can't figure it out, so I've left it as is. If anyone understands wiki syntax better than me and can fix it, please do :)

There are alot of pages which have nothing on, when you look at them and I guess we can just add something to them and I will think up more articles and just leave them as names and people will have something to do.

This was on the third page! I was shocked :D

It looks better on the first page and attracts more people. Plus, we are nowhere near to finishing though, as a wiki is never finished :D

I don't think so, JJay, as the work has slowed down on it a bit for various good reasons recently but I'm sure it will pick up soon, and then, we will need you :D

No problem!

Add as many pictures as you like.

There were some good pictures in the thread.

I put {Add picture} on a few threads which I want pictures adding on.

I would add them myself but am unsure as how to go about this.

All you do is upload the picture by using the upload file link on the left.

When you have it uploaded just put the name of the picutre you uploaded it as in the article like this [[name of image]].

You can also change the size, alignment and other things like that by putting those in like this [[name|size|alignment]]

An example from the wiki is [[Image:MajorLeagueSoccer.png|200px|right]]

On the left there is a link to help and if you go there you will find a guide on editing on the wiki which includes all this. It is very helpful and easy enough to understand.

Hope that helps. :thup:

It is not difficult at all. :p

Just align them by putting in the alignment you want as I said above. You can also change the vertical alignment the same way.

I know you can align them to a particular side. The main thing bothering me is that there's no way to resize the image you uploaded to have it the exact size you wanted.

Just put a screenshot of the finances and the like from the start of the game I suppose... (January 2008)

Oh, and I edited a few things like links in that page. And Steve Cronin was part of a group of players waived recently to get under the roster limit...

No you just put in something like this [[image|200px]]

200px is the size

100px will obviously give you half the size and that 200px will give you and so on.

I was incredibly lenient with him/her as well and they are more people spamming it as well with different ips so I warned all them as well even though they could be the same person.

It is the discussion page of the main page. I have reverted it back though.

jod123
15-03-2009, 18:59

It is just an ip so that is not a good idea as you should not ban them for that length of time. I'll block him/her for now if they do it again though.

Don't ban him for a week as that ip could be shared by anyone else.

I see it but is that a good idea? People might be wary of editing the page at all now so if they have a legitimate request they may be cautious and not asking incase they fell they are misinterpreted. I think we should just warn the people doing it. There must have been 20 different ips that I warned and they will each get a message. Personally I think that is enough. We have a feature to protect the page if we need to as well to stop unregistered users from editing or stop everyone from editing except admins.

ahmufcwafc
15-03-2009, 19:19
Fair enough. The page has been spammed again, so I've blocked it for unregistered users. I think it's best for now.

I meant I looked up the ips and they are from 2 different countries. I know you can easily change them though but it is still not guaranteed. Just because he posted the same links means nothing though as all he had to do was copy and paste from a previous version which anyone can and would do.
